Speeding Up Familiarity of Piano Geography
by: Ido from www.piano-play-it.com

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your kind words complimenting and appreciating our work. It warms my heart to know that you are able to learn how to play the piano by using our site.

I really appreciate your efforts learning the piano. I think that the first course that you took was not compatible for beginners since you got completely lost in it. I am happy that you have found our site because we believe that the progress in learning how to play the piano is gradual - step by step.
Learning how to play the piano is a something that takes time. Only when you do it in small steps can you reach high achievements without getting frustrated.

The familiarity of the piano geography is a skill that is achieved over years of playing.
However here are some points that may help you and will take help advance you

  • Exercises - when you practice techniques you not only develop your speed, but your brain ?sees? the keyboard as a playground.

  • Play the pieces over and over again - when you play a classic composition, a song or just a chord progression, try to play it perfectly. Practice it over and over until you can play it by heart and without mistakes. This could be a rather hard thing to do, but it has a great value if you want to feel that the piano is a part of your body.

  • Understand the theory behind the music- learn the chords, the scales and the theory. The better you understand the theory, the better control you will have of the keyboard.

    As for playing without looking at the keys ? I advise you to play the most simple pieces and try not to watch the keyboard. Gradually take more complicated pieces and play them without looking at the keyboard.

    Keep up the good work, and let me know how you are getting along.
